Joss Whedon Wanted SPIDER-MAN & CAPTAIN MARVEL In AVENGERS: AOU

leading up to the release of the Marvel sequel, rumors were rampant that both of the above characters were set to make cameo appearances in the film. By now we know that wasn't to be -- but if the director had his way we might just have seen 'em. Click on for more, but beware of SPOILERS...

Empire has posted a SPOILER filled podcast which includes interviews with both Joss Whedon and Paul Bettany (the Vision), and some very interesting thing are discussed. Chief among them is probably the revelation that Sony and Marvel were actually talking about integrating Spider-Man into the MCU as far back as the first Avengers movie, but obviously things didn't come together until recently.

Because of this though, Whedon didn't think he'd have too much trouble using Spidey (and Captain Marvel) in the final sequence of Avengers: Age Of Ultron, which features the new team assembling in front of Captain America and Black Widow. "So I would have put both of [those characters] in, but neither of the deals were made. And then they were like, ‘We’re making a Captain Marvel movie and we’ve got ‘Spider-Man’ as a property,’ and I’m like, ‘I’ve already locked my film you [frick]ers! Thanks for nothing.”

The Spidey cameo chatter comes in around the 25.00 mark but the entire podcast is well worth a listen, as Whedon also talks about Marvel wanting to cut the farm and dream sequences, his longer (and much better sounding) version of the Thor cave scene, and a lot more.

Where is pete post secret wars? In all new all different avengers we see miles...pete isn't even mentioned... where'd he go? Did he die?

Nothings been mentioned yet, but it has been mentioned or implied that Amazing will return post Secret Wars, whether Peter will be returning is still unknown

From C2E2: Sneak Inside The Marvel Unlimited Plus Event

Slott's turn came up next, saying that "Amazing Spider-Man" #18 is the last issue before the "Secret Wars" event comes. The issue will feature Black Cat's continuation down an evil road, and pages from the issue depicted Ghost fighting Spider-Man. Two full page shots of Ghost and Black Cat by Humberto Ramos were revealed, with the characters standing in the midst of flames. Slott noted that Peter Parker's supporting cast will be returning for this story, after taking a bit of a backseat during "Spider-Verse."

and Lowe did say we should get something of an answer in Secret Wars #1

From C2E2: Marvel Reveals The "Last Days" Of "Secret Wars"

A fan then asked how Spider-Man will be spending his last days, to which Lowe responded that will be answered in "Secret Wars" #1.

Ah, prequel, it's Babs.

Looks nothing like Babs though. She fits the image of Cass perfectly.

I'm sure as we get closer to the release date "June 23rd" we'll get more details on who it really is, but I'm pretty certain it's Babs. But if it does turn out to be Cass I will have no problems with her. But it would actually not make sense to have her participate in the game because, as far as I know she was not part of any of the previous Arkham games. Plus the developers did change a number of characters looks like they did with Harley & Poison Ivy, why would they not do the same with Babs.

I've sent a tweet to Rocksteady to confirm although I'm sure I don't need it to be. I've also asked if it's absolutely necessary to purchase the season pass to get the her and the other DLCs.

@animehunter: Wonderful.

Now what, 3 DLC's ?......Jason, Harley AND Babs?...

They're getting busy.

They should give us at least one of them for free, in exchange for our patience and support after getting through 2 delays.

EDIT : WHOA, it's not Babs, right?.....i mean, she's in the wheelchair and sh*t.....

Everything seems to points to it being Babs, one clue is, it seems to be set before Arkham city and thereby before she ended up in the wheel chair.

An all new prequel story expansion in an entirely new location where you play as Batgirl for the very first time in the Arkham series.

From ComicBook.com

Your Next Spider-Man Will Be Asa Butterfield Or Tom Holland?

spidermancontenders

Reportedly, Marvel has zeroed in on a pair of 18-year-old English actors, Asa Butterfield and Tom Holland, to be the next Spider-Man/Peter Parker.

We've previously heard that Asa was the frontrunner, but it appears that Holland is now nipping at his heels, according to Devin Faraci.

https://twitter.com/devincf/status/594171690248048640

Holland is best known for his roles in 2012 feature film The Impossible and BBC's 2015 television series Wolf Hall. He has a major role in Ron Howard's upcoming film In the Heart of the Sea, alongside Chris Hemsworth (Thor).

Butterfield blossomed early with roles in 2008's The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas, Martin Scorsese's 2011 film Hugo, and 2013's Ender's Game.

The new Spider-Man will appear in his own film, July 28, 2017.
